Types of Termites
Termites are bad news. When they enter a building, they start chewing any pieces of wood that they can get their jaws around. After a while, they can cause serious physical damage to a building, and they can destroy furniture. On top of that, when termites eat through wallpaper, they can release mold spores. Then, when people breathe in those fungal particles, they might suffer from lung problems. These insects are often found in buildings in the eastern Ohio counties of Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, and Wayne, especially as temperatures drop during the fall and winter.
You can divide termites into three groups. The first is the drywood termite, which feasts on fabric and paper as well as wood. Dampwood termites, meanwhile, prefer moist, decaying wood. They often move into homes with wet wood inside. Thus, if you have a leaky basement or attic, you may be susceptible to them. Worst of all are subterranean termites. These relentless bugs reproduce at fast rates and damage wood at great speed.
Termites in Your Home or Business
How do termites enter buildings? Well, drywood termites usually use windows and doors. For their part, the subterranean and dampwood varieties build outdoor colonies and dig elaborate tunnels. Those tunnels can penetrate homes and workplaces.Unfortunately, termites are excellent at hiding. Homeowners often have no idea that these pests are living with them until major destruction has occurred. For that reason, it helps to stay alert for subtle clues. You might tap on a wooden post and hear a hollow noise, or you might see pieces of wood with tiny chew marks. Other telltale signs are little tubes of dirt next to your foundation and mounds of discarded wings. As an aside, it's easy to confuse termites with flying ants. However, a flying ant has two large wings and two small wings, and a termite has four wings of equal size. Plus, an ant's body contains three distinct segments; a termite only has one.
